Green Wedding Favors

The color green represents life, health, and the environment. Green harmonizes the warm shades of yellow with the cooler effects of blue. In many cultures green symbolizes hope and eternal growth. It is closely tied to the environment, and is often represented as an attribute of rebirth and life itself. In Ancient Egypt green represented immortality and resurrection. In fact many medieval stories depict the color green as a representation of the qualities embodying love itself. Green is safe to use in weddings year round, simply by varying the natural shades. A crisp green is perfect for a springtime wedding, a darker grass green fits for a summer wedding, with olive green well suited for fall, and the cooler emerald green to round out winter weddings.
